They were told they would be eliminated if they didn’t finish their kitchen, master bedroom and ensuite in just one week.

The pair wowed the judges with their spaces and avoided getting the boot, with Neale Whitaker proclaiming it ‘the best Block comeback, ever!’

Host Scott Cam soon told the pair at the room reveal: ‘Jason and Sarah, welcome to The Block. There are five teams in the running this week,’ referring to winning kitchen week.
When walking into the kitchen, Neale said the pair are ‘back in the game,’ before Shaynna said they were ‘beyond back in the game.’

Neale also loved how the couple had installed a shelf behind the stove, and called it ‘simple genius,’ while he was also a fan of the step-up concrete bench.
Their only downfall was their painting, which they hadn’t finished properly.
Jason and Sarah were relieved that their hard work had paid off.
